are much higher with a total of 100 patients reportedly being treated at five area hospitals. nbc news has been told that one of the two known fatal tis was an 8-year-old child. no suspect in custody, many people are being questioned. the u.s. attorneys office is working together with the fbi, atf and other state, local and federal law enforcement officials on the investigation. and nbc news is reporting that 460 national guardsmen are on site as well. a white house official says any event with multiple explosive devices is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as such. we'll talk about that. and earlier this evening, the president himself addressed the nation. >> we're continuing to monitor and respond to the situation as it unfolds. and i've directed the full resources of the federal government to help state and local authorities protect our people, increase security around the united states as necessary and investigate that. we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but, make no mistake, we will get to the
device. the ap reporting, nbc news reported other items were found left behind. we have not confirmed whether they were, in fact, explosive or not but we know out of precautionary measures boston police rendered them safe. do we know from boston police whether they have secured an area and are no longer concerned about the presence of secondary explosive devices? >> reporter: we do not know that as of now. there will be a press conference coming up in 30 minutes where we're expected to find out more about that. we know they were treating anything left on the ground, any package as suspicious. as can you imagine, it's a marathon. people are dropping things left and right. then when the explosions happened, they're running away, and dropping whatever is on them so they were treating everything as suspicious. we do believe there was potentially a third incendiary device and that that was safely detonated. there was also a fire at the jfk library but right now it's not clear what caused that fire. they are saying there were no explosions happening at that library. >> nbc's katy tur, thank
enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign student injured in the blast has so far turned up nothing and he's not considered a suspect at this point. yes
from now in the months to come all over again. in washington, nbc news national security analyst and former director of the national counterterrorism center michael lighter joins us. we want to be careful about trying to figure out where this came from until there's good evidence that the fbi decides to release. but security at marathons. may en, how -- this is ridiculous. you've got tens of thousands of people lining a street looking forward, what do we expect? >> right. well, first of all, i really would echo joe and mike barnicle's views about it is so early in this investigation and i think it's incredibly important to be cautious about who did this and how we adjust in the future. but as you noted, these sorts of large public gatherings, these have always been viewed as potential targets. and we can do a lot to make these events safer. and boston -- cities like boston and new york have. it starts with collecting the intelligence. so you try to detect these things before they occur. you do have a significant police presence that boston obviously had. all of these things add u
. >> much more ahead on "nbc nightly news". -- >> bring out the best in others, the ones they seek to harm. >> right, there's still discussion obviously whether this was international terrorism or domestic terrorism. do you have a feeling on that? >> i this i this is one of those things you have to wait to play out. often there is a claim of responsibility quickly which we haven't seen yet. that could mean nothing. they say in those bombs they had bebes and ball bearings and i guess they asked one of the terrorism experts. as lester just the fbi special agent in charge they're processing live digital evidence right now. that is a priority. why the officials who spoke at that press conference, already they received tips, they're getting an awful lot of feedback from the general public as to what may have happened behind us yesterday afternoon. lester, we arrived here in the early evening hours. you have been covering this story from your point of view. >> the skriem scene area has been reduced down to five blocks. belongings left over from runners. they're looking for particles of the bombs
